CleanBC Go Electric rebates for home and workplace EV chargers

BC Hydro is working with the Government of B.C. and FortisBC to offer provincial rebates for the purchase and installation of electric vehicle (EV) chargers to get homes and workplaces across B.C. ready for EVs. It's all part of the province's Clean BC plan to make clean transportation more affordable and accessible for British Columbians.
